Of Books and My Most Favorite Word

I loved reading books since childhood. My mom and her sisters had a huge library with over 5000 books of varied genres. Mom always read out stories of Rapunzel and Thumbelina as a kid and that’s how I went to bed at night. She guided me in picking the right books and in fact, was uncompromising […]

Of Smoothies and Pineapples

You know by now that I’m enjoying my vacation in Kerala. It’s raining Pineapples here 🙂  As a kid, I loved having Pineapple Smoothie. We had a pineapple farm and Dad used to always make this special smoothie for us, kids. And that’s the only smoothie I ever loved. Not even the mangoes! Oh yup. […]

It’s the lil’ things… #DailyChatter #BlogMarathon

It’s day two of my stay in our new home and my kitchen is almost set. Today was all about filling my pantry with the necessities to survive for a couple of days. And thus, food was prepared when P ran around getting an internet connectivity, a mobile connection for me and the most essential […]

It’s a Brand New Day #DailyChatter #BlogMarathon

I do not want to start this post saying I’m back after a long time or sorry for ignoring my blog. I genuinely wanted to take a break, find some inspiration and then pen down for y’all. There were some life-changing decisions that I had to take and needless to say, there was a lot […]

Hiya! I’m back with my Sunday Sundae post…after long! This time, it’s going to be really special. Guess why? Well, read on… As you know I am taking up the #AtoZChallenge where in I write about an Army wife’s life. Honestly, if you ask me, I knew exactly what I should be writing about this year…only […]

The Month That Was… #FebruaryRoundup #MondayMusings

The month of February is my favorite time of the year. There is a lot of celebrations, love and merriment going on. Well, that’s one of the reasons I wasn’t writing much in here. The month started with a bang with me celebrating our third wedding anniversary. Just that I was all alone and was […]

Of Music, Playlists and their Wacky Titles

A couple of days back a colleague of mine caught me red-handed fiddling with my phone. Can’t blame him because I had been engrossed in my ‘task’ for a good forty-five minutes. Can’t blame me as I had only then received my phone from the service center after its tragic fatality and now it looks […]

Currently in September

What are you up to currently? It is a fun prompt, don’t you think? I somehow absolutely loved writing for this prompt. It helped in organizing my otherwise ‘all over the place’ thoughts. Reading… Witness the Night by Kishwar Desai. Pending since April. Will let you know why this book is important. Playing… catch up on sleep, the […]

My Favorite Season #septemberchallenge #blogtemberchallenge

A hot mug of coffee. A fuzzy blanket. A good book. You know what I am talking about! WINTER! This is the time you pull out the boots and wrap yourself in warm sweaters. And oh, my favorite- Pashmina Shawls! I still remember paying a visit to my husband who had to be away for […]

Happy Birthday, Blog! You’re Two!

September 1, 2015 Aww.. You’re Two! Happy Birthday, Blog! Exactly two years back, almost around the same time, I decided to pen down the recipe (Chicken Sarka) I tried in my kitchen, in a blog. And thus, this baby was born. As predictable, there weren’t much people who read my blog. But she took the […]

The Month that was.. #June2015

They say, ‘Out of sight is out of mind”. I’m not sure. But, I sure missed writing and reading. Whether it was deliberate, well, I hope not. I knew there were some fabulous posts by my fellow bloggers which were causing a stir in the blogging world and that I have missed out on writing […]

Announcement: Coming up- A Love Story

I had been taking pretty long breaks in my blogging these days. I never used to miss any prompts for writing, which practically made me write every single day. But, work and tiredness coming on my way, I only pen down once a week. There were a few who noticed my absence. Thanks to them, […]

A True Piscean

Let’s have some fun today. What is your astrological sign? Do you exhibit any traits commonly associated with your sign? I’m a Piscean- a true one at that. I have a smile on my face now as I read many websites showcasing the different traits of a Piscean woman. I had fun reading many of them […]

Sunday Sundae #3

Another lovely week has gone by. I’m feeling a lot better now with the Conjunctivitis finally biding goodbye. Though my vision is all blurred now (it might take atleast three months for complete recoup and recover), I’m glad that I can finally wear glasses. Well, that’s some positivity there, isn’t? 🙂 I had my hands […]

Sunday Sundae #2

Hey fellas, how was your week? I started off with a bang reviewing “Ramayana – The Game of Life : Rise of the Sun Prince (Book 1) (English)“. This is my first Book Review and I hope I did justice. I received an author signed copy from Blogadda and I was leaping with joy. 🙂 Lady Luck […]
